Fans were left to speculate after Bea Alonzo’s best friend, actor Janus del Prado, posted a series of cryptic messages on Monday (August 23). 

Without dropping their full names, Janus referred to people only by initials, a certain B, another person he called P, a couple he called G&J, a so-called "OMC Team" and a film he only referred to as MPY.

In his first post on the matter, Janus called someone out for not asking forgiveness from "Direk" and the "OMC team."

May bagong show ata kaya nagso-sorry kay B."

(He has a new show, maybe that’s why he’s apologizing to B). 

Sa amin nila Direk at OMC team di ka magsosorry at pinag away away mo kami para lang pagtakpan yung kalokohan mo sa set? Bekenemen,’” the text went on to say. (How about Direk and the OMC Team? Shouldn't you apologize that you made us fight just to cover up your nonsense on the set? Hoping so.)

“Now you know. Magkaiba ang sawsawero sa idinamay. (A meddler is different from someone who was dragged [into the issue]). Oh well,” he captioned on the post.

Many believe Janus was throwing shade at Gerald Anderson, who was earlier involved in a controversy with his My Perfect You co-star Pia Wurtzbach. PEP noted in an article that both Janus and Gerald worked together in the 2018 Cathy Garcia-Molina film. At the time, Bea unfollowed both Gerald and Pia on IG which sparked talks of a possible affair. Clarifying that it was only a misunderstanding, Gerald was quick to deny this. In another article, PEP also said that "OMC" could mean One More Chance, the 2007 blockbuster hit where Janus, Bea and Direk Cathy worked together. 

In his next post, Janus spoke up about letting someone who has caused you trauma back into your life.

Gerald's love life came up in an interview with Boy Abunda and his Init sa Magdamag co-stars Yam Concepcion and JM de Guzman on Friday.

“She’s the one.”

This is how the actor described his girlfriend, 24-year old actress Julia Barretto.

Marred with controversy, however, their relationship is far from perfect.

In June, netizens noticed that Julia deleted a photo of Gerald Anderson, along with a vlog featuring her father Dennis Padilla from her Instagram feed. Her followers suspected that it has something to do with the veteran comedian’s comment on her relationship with the 32-year-old heartthrob.

The couple had a rocky start. In fact, it was only in March of this year that the two acknowledged their relationship publicly despite reports that they had been dating long before.

In 2019, rumors about a spat between Julia and Gerald’s then-girlfriend Bea Alonzo swirled across social media. In May of that year, Gerald starred alongside Julia in the film Between Maybes. Months later, in July, Bea posted cryptic messages on Instagram, which fueled talks about Julia's involvement in the public breakup.

Both Gerald and Julia denied the rumors. Opening up about the issue two years later in an interview last April, however, Bea revealed that apart from cheating on her, Gerald also ghosted and gaslighted her.

Fast forward to Gerald’s recent interview with Boy, when the Kapamilya actor revealed that if he could go back in time, he would change how things turned out with Bea.

"Kung p'wede kong baguhin 'yung nangyari…kaso ang hirap Tito Boy eh (If I could only change what happened…but it's hard, Tito Boy). It's done. I've made mistakes. We both made mistakes," he said.

For her part, Bea has chosen to say mum on the issue. She is happily dating actor Dominic Roque.
